Today we have a thing called “casual Christianity” spreading throughout our culture. It’s the idea that we can be a Christian on paper, but not in action.. Where do you stand? Watch this short video challenging you to answer the question:

In the early church, families were separated. Jesus even predicted this family strife in Matthew 10. Those who chose to follow Christ weren’t always accompanied by their family members. But this didn’t matter. Following Him always came first.

Read the words of Jesus, Matthew 10:37-39. He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who has found his life will lose it, and he who has lost his life for My sake will find it.

It’s a New Year 2021. Expect persecution, hatred, and separation. Are you a causal christian, or will you take a stand?
